this thing is blind and uses hearing to navigate, right? if I cast Ghost Sound, will it interfere with it's spatial orientation ability the same way it would if I casted Silence? And do spells always work or would I have to roll for it?

I think the whole spacial disorientation thing is James' call... And no, you have no chance to fail at casting a spell unless
A) you're wearing a type of armour that is heavier than what your class allows.
B) You're trying to cast a spell in the middle of melee combat, in which case whoever threatens you gets an attack of opportunity and you must make a concentration check in order to finish casting the spell.
I presume you're not wearing full plate armour and you're not in combat yet. Even if you were, you could always take a five foot step and then cast a spell.
Darn it James, after all the effort I went to, to make myself on par with the group, and you throw us against an unbalanced encounter!
I want my 90 damage swift actions please.
Also actually been meaning to mention this; I don't want to use Scribe Scroll because that's an XP cost, and we're not using XP based leveling, so is it okay if I swap that out (Using the rules in Unearthed Arcana) for a different feat? I would've done it at character creation but I didn't think.
OR alternatively can I not have to pay an XP cost when I scribe scrolls?
Also Sam is flanking, so if he was using melee he'd be getting sneak attack damage additionally. I'm not sure how it works with using a bow in close quarters, looking things up atm.
Yeah can't find anything.. but maybe the creature hasn't heard him and he gets sneak attack anyways? Pleeaaaaaaaase.
But you guys are PCs. You're smart, you'll figure something creative out.
If anyone wants to tweak their characters a little bit, it's early enough in the game that I'd be open to it. Nic, I know that you were saying you might be interested in doing this.
I've been thinking about how to handle XP... Part of me is also tempted to use it since it's not so hard to just have an engine crunch the numbers for me. Or else I would just do an approximates version with delayed levelling for those who use XP-burning skills/feats.
Thanks for the reminder about Thårin's pre-roll, totally forgot about that. That roll doesn't hit, but... it was also rolled incorrectly. The roll was right for a single attack, but since you're rolling for both weapons, you make 2 attack rolls (with a slightly lower modifier for each). So it shall have to be re-done!
